mushroom fries

I absolutely LOVE mushrooms! They are so delicious and nutritious. I was eating at a restaurant saturday night and came across these delightful treats and thought I would create my own healthy version of them.

Now you can enjoy fries with your burger and not feel guilty!

4 large portobello mushroom caps

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

1/4 cup olive oil

2 cloves of garlic

2 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup parsley

1 teaspoon of cilantro

1 cup almond flour

1 teaspoon of italian seasoning

Scrape the gills off the portobello mushroom caps with a spoon. Brush caps gently with a damp cloth to clean them. Drizzle caps with oil to keep them from sticking to the grill pan and season the caps with italian seasoning.

In a small bowl whisk the eggs. In another small bowl place almond flour and parsley.

Slice the mushrooms into 1/2 inch strips. Place the strip in the egg mixture and coat, then place in the flour mixture and put it in the skillet.

In a large skillet  heat olive oil, garlic, and cilantro. Cook “fries” over medium heat and let brown for 2 to 3 minutes each side.
